Presenting photographs on websites so they look good for the majority of visitors can be a challenge, particularly for photographers.
A lot of computers have high end monitors. But the variety of ways that Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari (and the other web browsers) display colors means that to get consistent results across different browsers, images need to be prepared based on a lowest common denominator approach.
Fabio Pili has published an article on web browser color management that will be useful for photographers who want to use all the capabilities of their high end monitors when working with Photoshop, but also need to know how to prepare images so they look good when viewed in different web browsers.
I’ve added Fabio’s article to the list of useful resources on our How To article for photographers that covers preparing images for the web: Preparing Images for the Web: Color Profiles, sRGB and Adobe RGB.
